is reporting that google ceo eric schmidt will be traveling to north korea possibly by month's end on a trip that is private, humanitarian in nature and possibly led by former new mexico governor bill richardson. that would be significant for a number of reasons. first off, north korea is very secluded. cutoff from the rest of the world. the last frontier in cyberspace. the country doesn't allow citizens access to the world wide web. some can go on a local internet controlled by the government. they want to bring the internet to everyone. whether schmidt will push for that but allowing the google ceo to visit could be very symbolic. this is also interesting on timing. a couple days ago in a new year's day speech, kim jong-un emphasized the importance of bringing his country into the 21st century when it comes to digital technology and commuters. a leader of that country meeting with the leader of this silicon valley giant? again, that's still unknown. one expert tells the ap it's possible that north korea is interested in google technology but perhaps only when it comes to software for thing
